Better yet,if you want people that were warned to evacuate in the affected areas just show them this picture.




If you were ordered to evacuate,and chose to stay,please hope this is not painted on your house.

It is, and for good reason. It's not because they know the storm is going to go nuts, but there are a LOT of stupid people out there who will try and ride out anything. Adding in a little fear mongering to the mix will help motivate those people to actually listen to the warnings and get out, especially stubborn old folks who would be the most susceptible to this storm and also the most stubborn when it comes to leaving their property.

But I fear all that will do is cause extreme panic, and evacuating the area could be quite chaotic. This sounds weird my friends, I have never seen anything like this message posted before..wtf?

Irene was much stronger when it hit the Bahamas and outlying islands off Florida. Yet, I haven't seen any reports of people dying or damage other than fallen trees. This is fear mongering for economic benefit, or something else more sinister. If you're in New York, pay close attention to FEMA's actions.

Don't underestimate gun ownership and outdoorsmanship in the Garden State my friend! Sure, I am stuck with 15 round mags....so I've stocked twice as many as you have. I grew up in horse and farm country the same as most of middle America, only I drive, talk and eat somewhat faster......

Gun ranges in NJ are so crowded on the weekends you have to wait to get a lane, public or private.

Also, due to our population density, there are likely more gun owners in NJ than in many other states...despite the fact that we are heavily outnumbered by other New Jerseyans who are staunchly anti-gun.

Interestingly, all my friends who usually give me a hard time about my hobby are ALL changing their tune over the past week
Now they can see I have one less thing to worry about (albeit one more responsibility as well).

As was seen with Katrina, the possibility of disaster isn't limited to the storm itself. Areas that are not commonly hit with hurricanes... even light hurricanes.. could have fallout of another nature that could cause loss of life. There is nothing wrong with being prepared.

If they didn't do this, and people died, we'd hear all about how ill-prepared and useless FEMA is. They really can't win.

It has to be said.
It's not right to have the abilities to leave and stay behind, only needing to be rescued. It puts a strain on crews having to respond to emergencies for those who may not have had the oppurtunity to leave and other emergencies. It endangers responders having to go out in storms and put their own lives at risk. It puts other lives at risk.
It's just plain selfish not to heed warnings.

The id in a shoe is because it is a slow process identifying bodies. You have family reporting missing persons, this ties up phone lines and other resources. Then they will cry help wasn't fast enough.

Its to nail home the message: leave or face imminent death

More than 200,000 New Yorkers are under orders to flee a once-in-a-century hurricane, but many in the famed City That Never Sleeps are brushing aside danger -- and heading to the beach.

Yeah they gonna have a nasty surprise if it stays category 2 and hits NYC.... Arrogant people...

Have been thinking about Irene, and I am very concerned about the NJ area. The storm is going to cause a LOT of damage, but even on top of that, there are Nuclear Power plants in the area. There is definately the possibility that we will see a Fukushima style disaster there.

The only thing that they can do to prevent it (In my eyes) would be to turn off the area's power, cool down the reactors, and get rid of all of the toxic materials asap.

With all the # happening in the US, a nuclear # up would be the last thing they need.

Then you know nothing about these weather events, its not just the category. we got hit with tropical storm Isabel and it was devastating cuz it stalled and flooded us for three days. Cat 3 have skipped on by. There is more to it then just the number.
Hurricane Agnes was barely a cat one and caused 20 feet in flooding, 121 deaths, and 1.3 billion dollars and that is the 1972 estimate. it piled train cars up against bridges and you can stilll see the devastation today.
Whole towns were wiped out.

I agree. All the fear-mongering in the news is kind of fishy. Bahamas was cautious, secured everything down and they remained calm, I honestly thought they would be much worse off since it was a major hurricane and such small island but they weathered fine. This should be an example of how the US needs to prepare for a major hurricane. We in Florida got the outer bands yesterday (and still a bit left over today) I have been in numerous hurricanes and I'm just thankful we get a warning, this gives enough time to do all the preparation you need to do and evacuate if you need to, no need to panic, it doesn't do anyone any good. I don't understand all the fear-mongering and panicking going on (like the Maryland governor calling people that don't evacuate stupid and selfish, the president saying it will be a 'historic storm'). I completely understand being cautious and but this is ridiculous. I came to ATS to hopefully catch a break from all of it but I'm sad to see it got a lot of them too.

It is less to do with arrogance and more to do with distrust of the government.

If they truly believed the government was issuing the warning in the interests of the welfare of the people, most would heed the warning. Since they don't, they are left to assess the risk for themselves and they don't have too many resources to do that and may be underestimating the risk.
